Hello, i'm a 18 year old girl and not active constantly. Lately my legs and feet have been very sore for the past couple days. What could this be?

In brief: Many options

Healthy young people can have muscle fatigue which should resolve over a week or so, from increased activity or injury.
If it persists, you should consider stretching twice daily for 5-10 min. Otherwise, see a doctor for a more detailed exam.

In brief: Characterize aching

You question suggests you may be deconditioned - ie out of shape.
If you have been active recently this may be muscle aching to out of shape muscles. Alternatively there can be a variety of reasons from the soft tissues - muscles, tendons to joints. We need to know what affects the aching, what releives the aching and what the physicial findings are. Are there other health problems?
